Since this is a brand-new MOTU Origins subline, the card art and overall atheistic of the imagery for He-Man and Beast Man in this inaugural Masters of the Universe Origins Cartoon Collection line will bring new teases and show off the amazing work that the pours their heart and soul in. Yesterday, we got treated to a behind the scenes look at the He-Man card art, and today, he takes collectors behind the scenes showing sketches and how the art goes from concept to production of Skeletor’s Savage Henchman, Beast Man.


Cartoon Collection He-Man Behind the Scenes

On Instagram, Roy said, “Behind the scenes look at the packaging card back artwork for Cartoon Collection Beast Man! (Swipe to see the illustration development stages). Presented by LOS GUERREROS DEL PODER¬†@manuel_eduardo_caritas@fetch.franciscoetchart

It’s amazing to see the behind the scenes art concepts because we can see the creative process at work and it’s rare for designers to give fans a glimpse at how the sausage is made but not for Roy! He’s been amazing with letting fans get peaks at the process, which makes amazing line all that more special! In the image below, we can see the first concept for the Beast-Man’s card art, which looks very similar to the end result!


In the final pencils sketch, we’ve gone from concept to work of art but the illustration needs the colors to create the iconic scenes, and teases, we all know and love!


You can see the final, produced card art, from Beast-Man sketch 2 and, colors applied, the art really pops, and the scene is brought to life. The differences between A and B are very subtle and it’s kind of like playing Where’s Waldo with the changes but there is one change I spot between the positioning of the Dragon and how he is posed breathing his fire and there is a dual planet in Sketch B where there was not in Sketch A.

“The Dragon Invasion”

Fikmation Dragon Invasion 1

According to The Dragon Invasion | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom:

In¬†Dragon Valley,¬†Skeletor¬†and¬†Beast Man¬†steal several of the Mother Dragon’s eggs. When the¬†Mother Dragon¬†attacks, Beast Man’s powers prove not to work on her, and Skeletor destroys the ground beneath the beast, causing her to fall into a ravine. Meanwhile at the¬†Royal Palace,¬†Orko¬†is entertaining the royal family during dinner, when a crashing sound is heard outside. The heroes investigate, and find a dragon’s egg within the palace grounds. Before their eyes, the egg hatches and a baby dragon appears, growing to full size in a matter of seconds. and attacking the palace with gouts of flame.¬†Teela¬†takes the King and Queen to safety while¬†Adam¬†transforms, despite the falling debris, into¬†He-Man. He and¬†Battle Cat¬†tackle the dragon with the help of the returning Teela and¬†Ram Man.¬†Man-At-Arms¬†arrives with his new¬†Stasis Ray¬†just in time, freezing the dragon.

At Snake Mountain Skeletor revels in the chaos as baby dragons grow to full size, due to Skeletor’s growth serum, all across Eternia. Teela and Orko take the Wind Raider and use the Stasis Ray to freeze another attacking dragon. Stratos reports that a dragon has invaded Avion and requests their aid. Skeletor and his Evil Warriors journey to Castle Grayskull under the cover of the attacks; upon arrival Skeletor challenges the Sorceress. With the aid of the Dragon Pearl, an artifact which magnifies Evil-Lyn’s magic a hundredfold, they overwhelm the Sorceress and trap her within the pearl.

He-Man and his friends arrive at the castle just in time for Skeletor to seal Grayskull with a force field. He-Man has the idea of uniting the dragons to break the force field, so he and Teela head to Snake Mountain to confront Beast Man; by defeating him, all the dragons are now freed. He-Man sends Teela back to Grayskull with the dragons; the dragons unite and thrust their collective fire against Skeletor’s force field, destroying it.

Fikmation Dragon Invasion 2

The¬†Heroic Warriors¬†attack Skeletor, but he escapes through a portal and retrieves the Dragon Pearl from Snake Mountain, where he had hidden it. He-Man confronts him, and the two battle outside the fortress; Skeletor uses the energy of the Pearl to enlarge himself. When, in the heat of the battle, he falls off the edge of a cliff, He-Man grabs his hand and saves his life. A dragon surprises Skeletor, and he drops the Dragon Pearl into¬†Blood Falls. The villain makes a getaway, while the dragon dives into the falls and rescues the pearl. The dragon’s fire burns through the Dragon Pearl and frees the Sorceress. He-Man and¬†Zoar¬†return to Castle Grayskull, where the dragons walk through a portal to return to their home.
